I have a 2017 Tucson started acting up in the past month. The BSD Warning will flash intermittently while driving - no dirt or anything on the car to set this off. Then warning lights on the dash will start lighting up: Parking brake, ABS, Airbag, Traction, AWD, Engine light. Then the speedometer kicks out a bit after. Then the tachometer/temp gauge kicks out.

This recently happened to me on a long drive and died upon arrival to our destination. Had to get it towed to the dealership there and they just called to tell me all I need is a new battery. I want to hope that's all it is, but it seems like a bigger issue especially because none of the warning lights kicked on until about 2-3 hours into the drive.

Has anyone experienced this before, and what ended up being the issue?

Could indeed just be a bad battery. When the one in my Elantra died, it fired up, shut down immediately, and they gave me a full on exterior light show in the garage. I was like WTH......lol

Wouldn't it be simpler for the layman if the battery indicator was the only one lighting? Maybe flash for a while and stay solid at solid afterwards? Just thinking aloud...

So after the battery was replaced, they determined an issue with the vacuum pump. Hopefully that resolves all the issues.

Oh hey, that electric vacuum pump recall for possible water intrusion? I think it's on the electrical side so I mean, that would make sense if the pump circuit shorts out. Maybe. I mean, I'd expect it to be fused but maybe it's just relayed from battery positive in the fuse junction block, which would cause all those symptoms.
